Our favourite rooms
Each apartment has been designed in a different modern style, but all preserve a twinkle of their Gothic architecture. Larger suites Q3 and Q4 overlook the canal: Q4’s seven windows and fireplace make it the lighter of the two, but we like the tatami flooring in Q3 – a thoughtful Oriental touch that dovetails nicely with the bright white hues and high-gloss Corian bathroom. Q1, the studio, can be annexed to Q2 to form a bigger two-bedroom suite.
Small pets are welcome. I Qs can arrange helicopter trips over Venice and water taxis to take you around the city from the hotel’s private pier. In-room massages can also be arranged on request.
